Weird story: I was in an airport yesterday in Hartford CT when I saw someone wearing a Luol Deng jersey walk past. That wouldn’t have been weird except it was, ya know, a Luol Deng jersey in CT. I would not have been more surprised if I’d seen Tupac — the real Tupac — alive and sitting next to me at my gate.
Anyway, it was around that time when I got the news that the Celtics were in discussions with Eddie House.
In the process of surrounding their core with a solid second unit, the Celtics have had discussions about bringing Eddie House back to Boston.
House, whose shooting streaks helped the Celtics win the title in 2008, was shipped to New York at the trade deadline last February for guard Nate Robinson.
“It’s something [Celtics president] Danny [Ainge] and I have discussed,’’ House’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said. “But nothing’s imminent.’’
Call me crazy, but I just don’t see how Nate and Eddie co-exist on the same bench.
P.S. – Why is every single free agent the Celtics talk to represented by Mark Bartelstein?
